the data and they have to make this stuff available in the way that we collect it, and use it and public information should remain public and we are going to drive that forward. >> there are a lot of things in the strategy around and the use of mobile government and how we summarize the... and think about the 21st century government in that way. and the policy that launched a couple of weeks ago and so much more is being formed that i think will be very transformational in the years to come. >> wh, digital gov in the document, the digital updates, if you are like me you can experience it in a twitter boot strap format. and you can go through that, and i encourage you to not only download it, you know, and pay attention to what was going on and start using the data and start using... available and more importantly think about what are the next level? what is the next gps? how can we foster that? and then give that to us. you know, connecting on twitter, follow up on the... (inaudible) sector and today and just let us know. you know, it is actually going to come from here, the government n
is not the case. most of us are carrying around smart phones which are far more effective at tracking our every move than clipper cards. a recently designed smart phone application allows the phone to scan the clipper card and transmit information. it can be used without the clipper card's user's knowledge or permission. people can protect themselves from this by storing their clipper cards in a bag or somewhere, where it would be difficult for someone else to place a smart phone within a few inches of the card thus perhaps getting that information. the resolution addresses this issue. with the resolution, and i have an amendment of the whole that i have passed on to the clerk, it actually includes amendments that have been proposed by the mtc, we definitely wanted to work with the mtc on their concerns about moving forward with the new resolution and so the new resolution reflects those proposed amendments and they include a way to determine what the minimum duration of time is that -- excuse me -- it will request that the mtc provide a minimum duration of time that they will maintain clip
happy that all of you could come out and join us, you know, on this evening. my namey. the director of the night rover challenge. i'm going to kind of be the moderator for tonight, as we go through this first-ever challenge america summit. so i've got just a few things that, you know, i wanted to do with everyone, before we get into the program. first of all, i just want to take a minute and have everyone just look around this room. in this room, we have amazing people that are corporate, nonprofit, and government, all focused on challenge driven innovation in some way or another. this is a really powerful,interf people that are gathered here to look at how competitions can drive innovation. that's what tonight is all about, is, you know, the next step in creating a real wave of innovation. my job tonight is just to give you a little bit of background on what we are, what we're tiqp)q)s that we have.roup of so just to get going with that, i want to tell you a little bit about this thing called the night rover/< challenge. this is a collaboration between the clean tech open, unoodle,
enforcement here in california is in effect a war on crumbs instead of the often used phrase on drugs. how do you respond to his remarks? >> well, i think the first thing that we have to recognize is that the majority of people who are caught up in the criminal justice system and who are prosecuted for this type of offense for possession offenses and to some degree possession for sale offenses, the vast majority are indigent people and the vast majority of those indigent people are people of color. so what you have are two systems in place. you have a system where privileged white middle class people basically use drugs, college campuses, frat parties, not clubs, they use drug with impunity, they don't have to worry about being caught. then you have a system that comes down like a ton of bricks on indigent poor people and that's one of the reasons why i think this type of reform is a positive first step because if you aren't going to make drug possession illegal, at least make it a misdemeanor and not a felony. at least don't stigmatize and label an entire population of people as felons and p
] >> this is one example. facebook, google plus, instagram. we have all these wires in having people talk to us. what would they want and establish it, what kind of events that will help us be even more philanthropic about this. san francisco, santa clara, san jose, we want that effort to insight people to take this opportunity to join our nfl, join our 49ers, to join all of our sports crazy efforts and education efforts and all the things that we really reflect success in the san francisco bay area to join us in promoting this event and making sure that when we are ready to submit our bid to the nfl in may of next year that we will have created a community-based bay area wide effort to reflect on this wonderful opportunity. right now it is only an invitation but we will show this allows us to create the most collaborative efforts with segments of business education, bay area, the different mayors coming together, bringing us all together on this incredible opportunity. i have always thought that sports is an inspiration. i'm a big fan of 9ers, i know they will have an opportunity to win tonigh
summary probation which meant go home and sin no more. and if you do, you'll be back here to see us. and so, i think that once again, i go back to the fact that under the current system, because we have so many of those individuals who were once incarcerated at the state level, being pushed down to the counties, there's no room at the end in terms of the county jails. so misdemeanors aren't going to be sentenced to county jail but will be sentenced in community service or whatever. and for those individuals who do need some measure of control and supervision to deal about -- deal with their conviction problems, it's not going to happen at the misdemeanor level. >> let me go to a couple of the questions from the audience. i've shared them with our district attorney. george, two questions there, one related to whether or not drug possession should be treated differently for adults than from juveniles. and then a question about back on track, whether or not that program would be positively or adversely affected by senator leno's proposal. >> yes, let me start with the first question co
that comes to the city's general fund that's been used to pay for supplemental services for mta, police, outside of their premises on game days. is that the model we were expecting for this development? >> i don't think so. we will endeavor to create a separate funding stream that has neighborhood oversight and input. maybe neighborhood control. this is something we need to -- in a cbd model you wind up having neighborhood or stakeholder control of pot of money that can be used to deploy to address issues that are often neighborhood issues. not sure we will have a cbd but what we are committed is creating a dedicated funding stream that is visible and discreet from the city's commitment to ongoing maintenance and security. that the neighbors have said one of the things necessary is an ability to dial a response to impacts from having large numbers of people come in and out of the neighborhood. >> we don't have a real concept of what the funding mechanism would look like. >> we don't have a concept of the mechanism or what the funding stream is but that is something that, again, i think
to help us address construction and make it successful, as it is today. cmis is one of the first major tools we put in place. the next one is the san francisco online invoicing, where we are now working with the contractor and consultant to have them submit their invoices online. we are also working on electronic bidding systems. another way we can reduce the paperwork and all the other issues tied with the procurements. i live in san francisco. i am a rate-payer. i really care about the way we spend our money. systems like this that will allow transparency, clarity, accountability, and efficiency -- i think systems like this need to be applied to all parts of the city. we really strive to lead and embraced technology so we can be ahead of the game. [applause] >> we are spending $15 million per week just on our water system. that does not happen without incredibly good management, personnel management and i.t. systems to make it work. harlan kelly is responsible for all of that. [applause] >> good afternoon. first, i would like to thank spur and mfac for this prestigious award. also, e
things and i encourage us to have that debate as soon as possible so i would like to hear it on the 29th. >> commissioner borden. >> yeah. i think the issue here is the fact if the supervisor can move forth without the input and we want input by that time we need to stick with the 29 because we don't have to and we heard from members of public they want the conversation here at planning. they feel it's the appropriate place to have some of the discussions and i agree exactly with that that we need to have the discussion here so that people and figure out if we need more workshops, more follow up. i think there is a lot to be discussed here. i like when we took supervisor chu's legislation and look it apart and had a number of hearings. we didn't just continue it out. we had a bunch of hearings. i don't think the decisions being made about what vote we would or wouldn't take on the 29th but i think it makes sense to hear the legislation before it gets to the board of supervisors and have our input. >> commissioner hillis. >> i just like to request too as part of the next hearing perh
zoning configurations or anything. they simply wanted to be included as part of the great mix use community and to be treated accordingly, and on that note that really eased the tensions and we proceeded through the whole first years of our process in a very cooperative vain and basically drafted the outlines of what our entertainment policy is that is before you today. upon adoption of the 1990 zoning when residential became a fully permitted use planning in the city basically put out the welcome mat to residential uses. you basically said you're fully permitted as a right. come down to south of market. buy a home. buy a property. please expand that property. this is not the scenario you've often heard where people move down to the area of an airport and then move in at the end of the runway and they're surprised to find out there are airlines taking off. this is sort of the reverse of that. they moved down to a neighborhood where the city said the welcome mat is out and then the airport moves to their backyard. that's a little bit different, but our basic policy was we're
work with us. i want to extend my appreciation to them. big hand forclw, please. [ applause ] and of course, where is dennis oats? this guy is going to be here everyday making sure that the project is done well and built to spec. dennis oats, please let everybody know and if you have questions about this library, that is the man to talk to, dennis oats. [ applause ] >> lastly, i wanted to especially thank luis and his staff. luis in so many meetings had the opportunity to change the course or do something different and he stuck there all the way. he continued to encourage us. this is what i want. we need to get it and all the battles that we went through, luis was there and made good, sound decisions along with the library commission and that is why we're here today with that great project. big hand for luis and his leadership and the library. [ applause ] and of course, the project will be a library and a park and we need to do more projects like that in san francisco. so joining everybody, i'm looking forward to this groundbreaking and i'm looking forward to coming back
with mayor lee and the board to address a lot of these issues. this will clearly be a busy year for us. another component of our work is connecting the city's robuspro o assistance with our many business partners. this is a core part of mfac original purpose in san francisco. we are focused on building this capacity once again. as everyone here knows, the nature of how cities are doing business is changing. fundamentally. costly federal and state mandates continue to squeeze local budgets. increasing costs are forcing discussions about how we provide services. technology is requiring that we move more quickly than we have in a long time. building a network of partners to support our city government at this time will be more important than ever and will be critical as we were to emerge from the recession. we have a real opportunity here. we also have a real responsibility to help investment and success of our city. spur is committed to making this happen. we hope that all of you join us as we work to leverage a lot of these partnerships once again. spur is a nonprofit. member-supported

information from me, i can immediately send it to them. for example, just using it as an example, violence in the mission. what had happened was many of the officers, they have a general idea of location where the gang ipbs department "can you remembered, i was able to print out and send them the maps of the area and have the tack nick cal units, which are tactical units. you have it stay there, be very vigilant, let's see if this incident is going to escalate and while that's going on we find out whether it is even a gang-related incident. because we have had community based organization members who called me and said, hey, the one that happened at third, that's not a gang thing. it's a personal beef, you don't need to work about it. i think it's working, that the community-based workers are trusting us and reaching out to us to see what's going on. as far as technology we have ramped up our involvement with our technology in that we've created a base, a beta base, for people that have been arrested for robberies, people that have been arrested for guns. then we find out exactly whe
before we begin. i do want to thank our clerk, sfgtv and building management for helping us to put up the lighting. many folks in the room may know we did have an electrical fire yesterday. that resulted in a fire. which is why we have the lighting that is up. i want to ask all the members of the public here with us say thank you for your patience. just a few things. i know there is a glare or light directly in your face. unfortunately we are not able to move that. we need to light the podium so sfgtv will be able to pick up the image on television and show or broadcast that. in addition to that the air conditioning is not on. so please do have patience with us today. we are going to try to get through this meeting as quickly as we can but also make sure we have full public process while we are doing that. we have also set up another room. room 263 as the overflow room. if you are not able to find a seat in this room, we do have another. room 263 across the hall for overflow capacity. so that concludes my announcements. >> mr. young, item one. >> item one, resolution authorizing san f
and that's what's before us now. the carpenters that show up today, they're not necessarily from the san francisco local. that's local 22. that's pat mull i began. -- mulligan. i was negotiating for 261 members who live in marin county. so, we've always been kind of confronted with this what's good for san francisco versus what's good for working people in general. and i'm sensitive to that. we support local hires, for example, to the detriment of the union members that live outside of this county. those union members that live in san mateo county and those union members that live in marin county. the item before us, i see is slated to go before the san francisco board of supervisors. those officials, they don't have those same concerns. they solely represent or concern themselves with the plight of working people who live here in this town. that is why i'm inclined to move this item along for their consideration. because while i always love to see a whole bunch of big strong working guys in a room, i think the conversation probably is better had over there. and i think it would be wrong
have used an assume rate of 6 percent. and in doing that, we will realize in circumstances where we will have the deficits where the general fund will have additional dollars. so we are proposing that in the event that occurs, that if we continue to collect the revenue more than we need for that service, we would fund that med assessments will repay the city for those deficits. the next one is the stabilization fund, we know which hotel and revenues that are volatile, so the city negotiater will travel that will fund a stablization fund for future losses in all losses in revenues. and the amounts of $15 million and the goal is that as we move that portion of that $15 million it gets replenished and so it will be maintained through the term of the cod. in addition, as you know, the term of the district expires in 2045, we are proposing that we sell cops through 2047. typically when you sell bonds >> once they are satisfied this could go back to fund the future development and capital improvement to the center. so if you look at the cash flows, you will see that the number include the
for the m ta and so there is benefit for all of us coming together and that will save us all some money. >> okay do we have a budget analysis report? . >> good afternoon madame chair and supervisor kim and we have made some recommendation that is d h r is in concor dance with and by $799 to account to the december 1st start date of the agreement with us and m ta and to advocate prove the start date to november 1st 2012 and amend aimed the resolution to fix and evaluate the cost effectiveness of providing these services in house as opposed to a contract and an option to renew and otherwise we recommend the a proven prooivel of the amendments. >> thank you very much and i also believe there is an approval on the amendment or hold been on this item? >>> i think there was an amendment a small amendment to the final resolve but we are happy to accept all of the budget recommendation and is with that last amendment they are all incorporate i think there was a number missing in the final resolve. >> was was it a number missing in the final number why don't we go to public comment fir
on that. i see, you know, this resolution before us today on fiscal feasibility as a small step. certainly the amount of people in the room. it is a big step for the project moving forward but a small step in terms of all the questions and permitting processes we have to go through. so i actually felt very comfortable moving forward today. i also want to acknowledge the warriors and the work of the office of economic workforce development and community stake holders, labor organizations around getting aning a gaoument around local hiring, especially being a privately funded project it is a significant standard we are setting for future projects moving forward. clearly the city is embracing the need to look how we manage to bring local san franciscans into jobs we build in the city. i'm very excited this project is part of that principle and effort. i will be supporting this project moving forward or this resolution today. i is not a guarantee of approving future things but i think we have something worth moving forward and getting the full board support tuesday. >> thank you, supervisor av
with families for counselors to really focus on this group of juniors. the targeted support is again to give us a boost for this current class of juniors. who are the first to be hallowed to these graduation requirements. and to be sure that we have that extra support or the opportunity to give that extra support. like we had the opportunities in summer school. >> of this 2.7, which categories are one-time in nature? maybe you can just call out which ones were. >> there is the ideal world and the reality world. i think that the afterschool credit recovery. the largest bucket. >> which one? >> 1.7. that is something that we have relied on the 21st century grant. and we had good fortune to have that at the schools for enrichment and site specific credit recovery. as we move forward and don't get that for the next cycle of students and schools. we have to look at offering centralized evening school. we won't have it at all 16 comprehensive sites. but maybe offer evening school at six different sites. >> i apologize, 1.7 is ongoing and the remainder is one-time in natu nature? >> through the school
and some of the controls adding to the plang code, give overview of controls for land use like retail and housing and office and look at the intraim corridor and speak briefly about the administrative code amendments and overview of implementation within the planned area in terms of impact fees. so to begin and that's washed out there. i hope that you can see it better on your screens but the maps are in the packet also. this is the current zoning within western soma and you can sees since this was put in place in the plan and harrison street on the middle is essentially the spine. there is a somewhat different character north and south of harrison street that is strongly related to the presence of the freeway which somewhat kind of disconnects the neighborhood there. all of these districts are what are considered soma mixed use districts, and generally north of harrison street where you see a lot -- on this map at least, yellows and greens, but generally mixed use and includes housing and south of harrison street where you have sli primarily housing is extremely limited only to
is to recognize -- first of all, we're not entirely in control of our own costs. rates are set by m-o-us. [speaker not understood] so, we don't have control over everything. for the things that we do control, cost containment is an important objective. i don't think we should tie our hands and say that it will have to be flat. there may be good and sufficient reasons that we have to go above that. but if we do, we need to explain why. what those requirements were, how it calculates to an impact on the rates, and why that is a necessary thing for us to do. and there was basically nothing else we could do to offset those costs some other way, that we owe it to ourselves, we owe it to our rate payers that we make that kind of a finding. so, i think that's a very valuable addition. i'm sorry? >> where would you place the language? >> i think inserting that after the sustainability paragraph right before the report card might be addition emphasis as we're doing that report card. it can go many places. * additional >> it's meant to conform with the general structure and exactly where it goes -- >> we'l
rose did comparing us to la. we have decided that before we have that discussion, here at the commission, that we should have interested persons meetings with the public. and get some input from them. so we schedule two of them for december. and then we planned to bring that report before you for the january meeting. >> that is a good idea. >> to answer your question, going back to the scheduling. >> sure. >> so for december, we don't... there is nothing on tentatively schedule for the 14th, december 14th? >> no. >> there is not. >> okay. thank you. >> okay. anything public comment? >> on the executive director's report. >> thank you, dr. kerr again. this chart on the first page of the director's report, that has 6 categories of investigations and enforcements, mr. st. croix introduced that chart in 2006, but the first month that this chart was introduced that was whistle blower/sunshine ordinance. since then, in the last six years, the word whistle blower has not appeared. now whistle blower retaliation is arguably a more serious problem than any of these because it in
they might use something that would be from cell phone to communication. that way be able to get on the loud speaker system. another park in looking over the betty anne long is the structure of the place. i don't know that i got the message yet. i got to look. looks down and i thought they should have a structure and take a once look over, a crack on different floors. there were crooks on the corridor parts. office parts. they are not too bad. i think the facility was informed and fulfilled the safety requirements, thank you. >> is there any other general public comment? >> good afternoon commissioners, general manager of recreation and park department. members of the public. a little food for thought for you to chew on over thanksgiving. and hopefully you won't choke on it. september 11th, 2011 mayor willie brown, given advance warning of the nation's worst terrorist attack since pearl harbor. if only he had have told betty anne ong not to travel on september 11th, then we wouldn't have had to have -- >> i just have to remind you, that was a tragic event. i think you just have to show a lit
: us you work as hard as i do? does he have personal integrity? is he smart? he meets all three criteria. he is a number one win-win problem solver. in the board of appeals there will be any winners and losers of the losers will not feel as bad when they get the message from darryl. he has an incredible ability to read people, both said and not said, and intuitively can connect with people. he listens with compassion. and with heart. and ultimately delivers a message that will be clear but with kindness. another thing, as realtors we are challenge with integrity issues everyday. it happens and open houses, in offers, from colleagues. working with him i can say 100 percent that i trust them with both my life, my real estate dealings, and ultimately with all my clients. i fully endorse my colleague, darryl honda really doesn't answer an e-mail let me know and i will get on them. >> supervisor kim: public comment is now closed. (gavel) we have an appointment before us. we have to make a motion to amend before we follow this to the board, either a motion to approve or re
the water side on the south steps up to a plus 45 on the north side of the pier. that allows us to do several things. from an experience of those patrons who will be coming to events there it allows us to enter those patrons on the main con course and go down to their seats, or up to their seats, which will greatly experience the fan experience. one of the other things you see is robust maritime opportunities. part of the plan proposes to relocate the fire boat station to this site. the three vessels you see on the north side to the left represent the city's fire boat fleet. there is a placeholder on the north and south side of the pier that is envisioned to accommodate water taxi, ferry landings and private craft in the lower right-hand corner of the site. we are very excited about having this enter into the review so these ideas can be fully vetted. the design will evolve as that takes place. >> in order to do the fiscal feasibility analysis it was important to come up with a broad outline of the proposed business terms for this deal. so the warriors in the city in port work to come
that were we to have the same rules applied to us, we would just be selling our hydro and substituting in other renewable resources. the objective of the law is to in part to reduce the emissions from power plants. we don't have any power plants that emit. >> [inaudible]. >> yeah, i have a couple of questions. so, we can't bank the rps resources? >> we can. under the rules, we can -- if we have -- if we do that math equation and we have lots of extra rps compliant power, we can bank those renewable energy credits. you earlier allowed us to register with us the western system that allows folks to have those credits certified in a way that's recognized by the marketplace. we are registering those credits, then, and we can use them ourselves in a subsequent compliance year. so, for example, in this year because last year was wet, 2011 was wet, we had some extra. this year we're going to need to purchase some, but we're also taking some of what we generated last year and applying it to this year. so, we're not having to purchase as much as we otherwise would have. >> and they don't expire?
ended in two crashes, hospitalized bicyclist. terry mcsweeney joins us live from the mission district with new information. >> reporter: new information from the chp and new information from city workers. looks like it is not going to be until noon before the lights go back on at 17th and south van ness that is going to be a problem, nobody is out here directing traffic. they've flares out now, i've seen people come through at 30 miles an hour, reason that we have in problem is because the signal box got knocked over at the end of an incident that began 2:00 this morning on the on-ramp to i-80 at 4th street. next, according to the chp that on-ramp was closed that got their attention so did the speeding, weaving, as you look at these picture the incident took five minutes, the jeep that they were chasing up to speeds of 55 miles per hour, slammed into a car which hit a bicyclist. chp not sure if the bicyclist was on the bike or walking the bike, that bicyclist was taken to the hospital, checked out, minor injuries, probably released by now. now take a look at where ended where i am a s
the thing. [cheers and applause] now, we had something different to help us. in 2010 we had the rally gong. that game through for us but this here we have hunter pence's sermons and wherever you are thank you hunter. [cheers and applause] but as i was flying here after we beat detroit you have to realize that we're drinking from water -- from the well dug by others. there are so many people that did something here to contribute. the players, the coaches, myself we're in front the tv, but owners with their help. they have such a commitment to make the best experience for you fans and doing all they can, and to extend the storied history of this franchise and -- as he said we're just not working together as gm manager. we're friends. i can't appreciate more how supportive he's been throughout of this with me. he's the genius that put this talent together to help get this done. to mayor lee, the city of san francisco, to the fans with your enthusiasm, your dedication, your enwaiverring support i thank you. i thank you for always being there. i thank you for never giving up. i thank y
this will hurt partners in oakland. it is challenging for all of us, but one i'm hoping we can take advantage of of the waterfront and keep this as economically viable as possible. those are the thoughts. i'm happy to take questions if you have them. >> thank you. supervisor kim, did you have a question? thank you. why don't we go to the budget analyst report. mr. rose. if i can ask you to go to the poem. >> madam chair, members of the committee, we have a conclusion and report on page 18 where we state the proposed development appears 3032 and seawall lot 10, including rehabilitation of the property at pier 30, 32, multipurpose arena for golden state warrior games and events. public open space. maritime use, retail and related parking. development on seawall lot 330 of residential hotel and retail use and 53.8 million. direct ongoing annual financial benefits between 9.8 million and slightly over ten million. undetermined indirect benefits from grocery receipts tax revenue up to 120 million as you have heard capped in private expenditures, rehabilitation of 3032, reimbursement by port of tho
is really disturbing. >> let me ask you about that mr. hau. because c3-699-13, appears to use the term to the extent permitted by state law. >> i draw your attention, commissioner hur to section 1040 b. i'm assuming that state law takes precedence over 699-13. i would assume, sir, that you would know that 1040 should take precedence over the city charters or this particular government conduct code which is not even at the city charter level, if i am right. >> 1040 b, clearly states, a public entity is a privilege to refuse to disclose official information... unless disclosure is forbidden. there is nothing >> in the act of the u.s. congress or any other statue that forbids the disclosure of the information that i am seeking. >> except that there is another paragraph, mr. shaw. i mean the basis for miss herrick's analysis is 1040 b2. she is not claiming that there is an act of congress that forbids this. she is claiming that the necessity for perceiving confidentiality out weighs disclosure. >> commissioner hur, let me respond to that question and that is, sunshine ordinance, if you hav

to the med assessment, we have not used the numbers that are in the management plan. we have worked internally with the division in the controller's office to better project where we think that revenues would go. so some of the assumptions in some of them coming on-line and not included here. this is a more conservative assessment with the growth of 3 percent. and then the next piece is the city. so when you look at the total sources, and you look at the total uses, you can see in here is 2019, you start with 6.2 and it declines to 8 million. so the idea is that the prior year's deficit will be funded when the surplus of all of the other buckets have appeared. and then when you go to sinking funds because that is later in the year, because the certain here is the 2046. the idea is that income and if you add the 10.7 million the city is committing to pay and you take into account the sinking fund it should be paid at that service, so we are having them prefund the year. and then the stablization fund and with the office and the revenue division, they did an analysis showing what in t
